JOIN FORCES

Education is most effective when the entire community, parents and school members work together to ensure their students have the skills to succeed in college, the workplace and beyond.

Likewise, our students are most successful when they work together with industry partners on real-world projects that address today’s real-world challenges.

WHAT DO INDUSTRY PARTNERS DO?

Internships
When you open your business to students, you open their minds.
This hands-on experience is one of the cornerstones of the Purdue Polytechnic model. Through internships with local businesses, students gain an early glimpse into career opportunities and become proficient in the concepts they learn in the classroom.  

Mentorships
Guide students as they navigate the Purdue Polytechnic curriculum.
Industry mentors help students choose fields of study, understand the opportunities and challenges ahead, and support the student’s transition from high school to post-secondary education or the workforce.
Register to be a mentor.

Project Challenges
Bring out the best in your own organization.  
Our industry partners introduce real-world business challenges to our students, provide guidance on project prototypes, serve as panelists for student presentations and provide feedback on project pitches.
